[NTG-context] LucidaBright fonts...I'm stumped

Hello Henk,

I reply to your request only beacause I'm also using the Lucida Bright fonts.
At least, you must also have the appropriate .tfm files for your fonts. 
In addition, I also have some virtual fonts (.vf) that have been created for Lucida fonts for the particular encondings (namely ec). 
In ConTeXt, you need to write the font definitions, so-called typescripts.
I must confess it took me quite much time and testing to understand how typescripts work and make myself a bit familiar with them!

If you want, contact me off-list and we can discuss the particular issues.

Subject: [NTG-context] LucidaBright fonts...I'm stumped

I've been using teTeX - LaTeX - LucidaBright fonts for many years, but am
unable to make these fonts work in ConTeXt. My present setup after installing
teTeX (a Debian or Ubuntu package):

1. Make a directory /usr/local/share/texmf/fonts/type1/yandy

2. Copy the LB .pfb files to subdirectories lubright, lucida, lucidfax,
   lucsans and lumath

3. Run texhash

and everything works fine in LaTeX -- I only have to specify
\usepackage{lucidbry} in the preamble of my documents. Couldn't be easier.

I've read through some of the archived messages on this newsgroup for
clues for making LB fonts work with ConTeXt, I have even tried following
the suggested steps, but no dice. Could someone here please list the
precise steps required to get from my above teTeX setup to one that works
in ConTeXt?
